Ethiopia, Egypt leaders say Nile dam must not destroy relations

Ethiopia, Egypt leaders say Nile dam must not destroy relations

Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam project on the Blue Nile, launched in 2012, is created to feed a hydroelectric project to produce 6 000 megawatts of power, equal to six nuclear-powered plants.

Sisi said Ethiopia was not aiming "to harm the interests of Egypt", while reiterating Cairo's call for the World Bank to serve as a neutral interlocutor between the two countries on technical issues related to the Nile.

"Our destinies are common and bound by the River Nile, which represents a vein of life joining our nations", he said.

The Nile basin enjoys great resources and capabilities that makes it a source of interconnection, building and development, not a source of conflict.

Sisi, meanwhile, said he expressed concern to Desalegn regarding the deadlock between Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia, and their technical study of GERD.

Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met with the Ethiopian Prime Minister at the end of December during his visit to the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to follow up on bilateral relations between the two countries, prepare for the Ethiopian Prime Minister's visit to Egypt, and to discuss the course of the GERD negotiations.

He added that the Egyptian proposal to include the World Bank is up to Ethiopia and Sudan to study, saying he has agreed with the Ethiopian Prime Minister on another vision.

He further noted that there were ongoing discussions with Desalegn to enhance the economic co-operation between the two countries, with Egyptian businesses pursuing investment in Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Desalegn arrived in Cairo on Wednesday accompanied by a high-profile delegation to attend the sixth meeting of the joint Egyptian-Ethiopian Higher Committee. Egypt's average water per-capita is expected to drop from 663 cubic meters per year to 582 cubic meters by 2025, according to the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).
